ABSTRACT
JAMES WHARTON, the 29-year-old Tory who won an MPs' ballot to get the chance to turn plans for an EU referendum into reality in 2017, should enjoy his moment in the sun. He is unlikely to be in Parliament when the historic plebiscite takes place: Teesside MP Wharton has a wafer-thin majority of 332 and his constituents don't seem to give a monkey's about the EU. 'I'm not voting for him again,' one local said yesterday. Make that 331 - and falling.
